Condumax II Transportable
Hydrocarbon & Water Dew-Point Analyzer
Transportable natural gas dew-point analyzer system for operation in the field. Suitable for IEC
Zone 1 or 2 hazardous area, NEC Class I, Division 1 Groups B, C, D.

A complete transportable natural gas dew-point analysis system for field spot-check measurements. Periodic online operation
when located in a temperature maintained analyzer house. Measurements and functionality are instantly accessible through
integrated alphanumeric display and touch-glass HMI interface including log of dew-point readings for operator review.
